This is not a rant about the site but it would seem more logical to catalog all the serials into their own respected pages. For example all of Ace Drummond into one page of Ace Drummond not 12 separate pages like they are. It's a hassle to have to open that many pages just to get one link off of each page and not to make matters worse is the numbering system used on the serials. The latest Flash Gordon numbering upload is horrendous . Now the rant: Please someone fix the problems I've mentioned to make this site more respectable.

Depending on how many serials we get in the future, we might consider this.

Also, Scott is working on newer, higher quality encodings of the Flash Gordon serial, that is why it is taking longer to fix the problem.

You will have to be a little patient with us as we all are volunteers working on the Feature Film section and sometimes it takes a while to get things working as expected.

So the mislabeled Flash Gordon's are going to stay the way they are in a confused order with the 1st episode missing all together? What good is that? At least get those reorganized until the higher quality ones show up and we can download the complete series in the mean time please. By the way even the thumbnails of each episode are out of order.

The serial is uploaded by a user, so we're just waiting for that user to upload the correct versions - we don't intend to touch the current versions, though we could make them inaccessible now if people prefer.

Does that fix the problem that the information is wrong but the pages are still there with incorrect episodes? Sorry I'm not buying the milk from the bull on this one.

I would like to add, that it might be useful to rethink the way movies (and other files!) are categorized on this site.
Right now it looks to me, as if uploaders categorized their films themselves (or not at all!) and make up the categories as well. Hence, there are categories which exist more than once and some that are impossible to distinguish.
Is it be possible that either 1. a few authorized categorize the movies systematically. This would of course be little democratic. Or 2. viewers are enabled to add feature films to categories?
As mentioned, right now films are categorized confusingly or not at all. This way many films will be seen less than they else might.
